Warrior Nun to feature at Netflix’s Geeked Week

First and foremost, let’s kick off our big preview with the news out of Netflix’s Geeked Week. Warrior Nun featured at Netflix’s Geeked Week on June 6th alongside other TV shows like Manifest, Locke and Key, and Shadow and Bone.

We got two major bits of news including our very first look at the new season and the release window of “This Winter”.

This teaser trailer shows a recap from season 1, as well as new footage of the upcoming second season, with Adriel as the villain.

The writers also teased they’re already beginning planning plus by most metrics, the show performed well. We heard that Warrior Nun was renewed for Season 2 shortly after it had been released.

Simon Barry is the Warrior Nun showrunner and stated the following during an interview about the future of the series (before the renewal was officially announced):

“When we were finishing Season 1, we had many more avenues to go down story-wise. So we created a folder thinking, hey, if we’re lucky enough to get Season 2, here are some things we could draw from. After seeing the show completed, we regrouped just to talk about ideas.”

On August 19, 2020, the show was renewed with cast members and crew members coming together through a virtual call in order to confirm that season 2.

What is the performance of Warrior Nun on Netflix?

The series was third on Netflix's list of top-rated TV shows in the last 30 days, from July 6th through August 6th 2020. Cursed and Dark Desire occupied the first and second places, respectively.

It was also the most watched TV series globally in July 2020.

The series was ranked number six in America and fourth in the United Kingdom. The series reached its peak position in the United States at number 2 for the first weekend, after being beaten by Unsolved Mysteries.

Warrior Nun was able to reach the top spot in Brazil, New Zealand, and the Netherlands.

Season 2: What can you expect from Warrior Nun?

Fans were left begging for more action after the climactic finale of Warrior Nun's first season.

The Order of the Cruciform Sword’s true purpose was revealed, being nothing more than puppets for Adriel against the forces of Heaven. After he touched her, Ava revealed his true identity. After he killed the Tarask monster, which followed him through a demonic portal, his original knights mistakenly thought he was an angel.

Adriel, who was hiding in the Vatican tombs, had kept the halo hidden inside the Warrior Nun. He created the Order to give him protection from Heaven.

Adrial escapes his tomb and seeks to regain the Order's halo so he can continue with his evil plans.

Shotgun Mary, despite her enthusiasm, was defeated by Adrial's possessed forces. Ava and other sisters were left to fight Adrial's small army of Wraith Demons.

Ava and her Order will continue to fight Adriel in the next season. The devil is now making his appearance to the world. Instead of being alone, it may be that the angels of heaven descend on the Vatican to aid the Order.

While outmatched in power, for the time being, Ava’s skill as the Warrior Nun is growing. Ava will likely be more formidable than Adriel's demonic powers if she has enough time.

It is a fact that The Order of the Cruciform Sword exists only because it is fabricated. So it’s up to Ava and the remaining sisters to bring its new meaning.

There’s also the little issue of Father Vincent’s betrayal, that lead to the demise of Sister Shannon. It is possible that the girls will commit an inflictious sin by seeking revenge on their mentor.

In an interview with Looper, Simon Barry teased what we might see in season 2, as well as other surprises.

“Well, I guess we were holding back so many secrets in a way in season one. The fact that we now have the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, in terms of the mythology of the show. I think it’ll be really exciting to take that journey and unpack what we’ve revealed.

The appearance of Adriel, the relationship with Father Vincent, and also as the stakes have changed for Ava and the other sister warriors. For me, it really is building on what we did well in season one — and hopefully doing a better job at season 2, if we get it.”

When can we expect season 2 of Warrior Nun on Netflix?

Netflix will soon have Season 2 of Warrior Nun.

Season 1 was filmed between March 11, 2019, and July 5, 2019. The series was then available on Netflix worldwide for almost one year.

Simon Barry, showrunner of the series, shared many photos from Spain in June 2021 while they were doing location scouting.

Simon Barry, who thanked his crew and cast for their hard work on Warrior Nun said that the main unit had completed filming by November 3. While the main unit of Warrior Nun is wrapping up filming, a second unit will likely be taking on more work but it's the majority. He said in the tweet:

Simon Barry updated us on the progress of the project in late February 2022. Barry replied that season 2 is available on Twitter when Barry was asked:

“It’s in several thousand small digital parts in a massive Netflix server, being reassembled by brilliantly talented artists who need to shape it just right so that it melts your brain in the desired fashion we imagined.”
